rally and part propaganda tape. officials say it's highly unusual to so a large gathering of militants in an area so frequently targeted by u.s. drone strikes and it's very rare to see senior commanders appear in that setter. we have a leader who restates his vow to strike the united states. because the tape celebrates a february prison break by al qaeda fighters in yemen, officials believe this tape was made recently. and it shows al qaeda fighters were their faces blurred out. the worry now is that those operatives could be involved in some kind of future plotting. u.s. officials are taking a hard look at the tape trying to pick up any clues that could point to specific threats. >> i was going to ask you how much of a threat they were but it sounds like based on that kind of story, they consider this a serious threat. >> absolutely charlie.
7:10 am

helicoptered in yesterday to try to rest that control of an airfield from separatists. and 40 miles away more ukrainian soldiers made preparation for a fight against the insurgents. their general described it as an anti-terrorist operation. ukraine's leaders blame moscow for instigating unrest here but the militants have popular support for many russian speaking ukrainians who say they're discriminated against by their government.

8:17 am
pill do and why does it cost so much? >> it actually is a remarkable pill. it takes help tie it c what was hard to treat before only those who went through rigorous medicine, they got better but it had a lot of side effects. this pill is good, you take it once a day but it cost $1/,000 a pill. they say it costs $329 billion and we need to recoup our incentive and at the same time there are 3 million people with hepatitis c in u.s. and they need this drug. it's a monopoly. they can charge whatever they want. >> what are so-called specialty drugs that are also expensive? >> it's a new class of pharmacy drugs. rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis sclerosis, they represent 1% of prescriptions yet over 25% of
8:18 am
costs. a new drug is predatory practice. yo have a monopoly. you can charge what you want and what the market will bear. the drug companies say, well over time it pays off because they work better less side effects but pay all the costs up front. we need to get more involved here. >> so you're saying the cost is not justified. >> i'm saying the system can't handle the cost and it's not a rational-based pricing. we need to have pricing based on returns to the patient. >> i like that phrase you just said predatory practice. what can we do? >> we have to do something different. we have to either regulation this and what is the value to the system. what if you went to pharmaceutical companies and said, hey, listen payment only works if it works. we need to come up with appropriate pricing so we can all benefit from these drugs and push the companies to make new exciting drugs because we need them. >> i was assuming the drug
8:19 am
companies would say we spent a lot of money on research and development for things that don't pan out and we need to get some kind of return on those that do. >> there's no question. there's got to be bans there. but at the same time there has to be some rational price. if you have advanced cancer and i make a new drug i can change whatever i want and the insurance company has topy or you have to pay out of our own pocket. when you have the best in the class, you can charge yo roy want. the only push might be the government enacting the law and that might be legally dicey correct? >> no question. it's not clear who's charging. it's not the fda. they're not involved in pricing at all. how do we get leadership to get involved to make changes and a difference. >> thank you so much. the coach of basketball's top team says you have to work hard to succeed and his mother told him so.

with that loss but their own injuries from the attack. as part of their healing think launched the marin richard foundation and on monday 100 runners will remember martin as they compete in the 2014 marathon. "the washington post" previews a new s.a.t. college entrance exam. the college board released draft sample questions this morning. one asks for the definition of the word intent. the essay will be optional. the high score will return to 1600. the "los angeles times" says the brothers of the late actor paul walker will help complete filming on "fast and furious 7." walker died in november if a very fiery car crash. he has already filmed most of the scenes. his two look-alike brothers caleb and cody will stand in to fill in some of the remaining gaps. and the london telegraph says when it comes to sleep the happiest couples need their space but not too much. it cites a study suggesting partners who sleep less than an inch apart are more likely to be happy in their relationships than those who sleep 30 or more inches away.
8:32 am
i'm a believer in that. >> it makes sense to me. >> me, too. >> don't get the king size bed. stay in a queen size bed. >> oh, i like the king size. >> snuggle. you got to snuggle. >> you need time to be close and time to be away. >> i like the king size bed. you need a lot of room. i think being close -- >> i think one inch is a good idea. >> yeah thaefrt. >> the denver post says the colorado rockies helped celebrate jackie robinson's career. players on every team they played yesterday wore the number 42 on their uniforms. that was robinson's number when he played for the brooklyn dodgers. they honored the 67th anniversary of robinson breaking the color barrier in major league baseball. >> and variety says that soul train's next stop may be broadway. a producer bought the rights to the legendary tv show. he's hoping to draw on the huge appeal soul train enjoyed during 35 years on the air. pop hits have been a hit in recent years. >> this morning we're going to show you a way to the corner office without spending a quarter million dollars and two years of your life studying for

an mba. our next guest says achieving success is much simpler if you can master basics like not appearing stupid and not hitting "replay all" on e-mails. thank you. could somebody please stop doing that. i so agree. >> we have all done that. you go yikes! those are some of the lessons in a new book called "the curriculum: everything you need to know about be a master of business arts." it comes from best-selling authority and fortune columnist stanley bing. but it's really his pen name. around here we know him as the one and only gil schwartz. he's senior executive vice president and chief communications oefrs for the cbs corporation. but today we welcome stanley bing. this book was hilarious. when i first got it i said oh it looks like a textbook. but there's a reason for that. one reviewer said about you, it's a completely make-believe set of rules on how to conduct ones self in business. or is it? because some of the advice was so right on. i love starting with the stupid stuff.
8:34 am
because you said being stupid is an impediment to success. >> yes. >> stupid comments. i won't be available all weekend, call me monday. my voicemail is full. or number three, who's bleeping idea was that. stupid happens allot in the business world. >> everybody does stupid things. and i think the important thing is to not appear stupid. it's actually more important to not appear stupid than it is to not be stupid. because many stupid people get ahead but not if they look stupid. so i think that's why it's -- >> smart people can look stupid and not get ahead. >> well, absolutely. or be punished for stupidity that's just apparent and not real. so, you know i think it's a good idea to open the book with a chapter on that as opposed to going straight to things like finance and marketing. >> yeah. >> because if you appear stupid you may ruin your chances, even if you foe about all those things. and it's a very focused method of not appearing stupid. >> you've created some handy videos designed to be corporate bland, to show people how not to
8:35 am
appear stupid when you have no idea what you're talking about. let me just show those. >> well, sir i've seen the numbers, and there are a lot of them. yes, sir these are numbers all right. >> listen, i'm not really a math guy. i guess that's why the nerds in finance all drive mercedes. am i right? i'm more of an ideas guy. >> well ted, sounds like you need to focus harder and study up. if you can't keep up maybe next time i'll invite steve to join us instead of you. >> frank i've seen the numbers, and i'm as disappointed as you are. one number in particular caught my attention, and i was wondering if you could explain to me how we wound up here. >> ah excellent question janet. you see, ted, this is the type of special attention and laser focus i expect from you. allow me to explain. >> now, the concept here is a focused question. >> yes. >> that is when somebody puts a
8:36 am
table of numbers in front of you, you go what is this then you look stupid. but if you go what does this mean? then financial people in particular will embrace the opportunity to inform you what that one number means. and think it's a darned good question. >> for a moment they think you know what you're talking about. >> because you must know the rest if you focused on that one thing. so that's a focused question. >> you have a thing, too, about dealing with crazy. if you're in a meeting, do this up, down up down until someone just says stop doing that. >> yeah, what are you doing. that's in the chapter called maintaining mental fitness. and i do have some exercise that you can do which include getting up, and walking about the room and it kind of interfaces a little bit with the chapter on board. >> or deals with falling under the desk scrambling around and sitting up and going, what are we talking about? >> you have to be rather senior to do things like that. >> what's the rule for drinking with your boss. >> this i learned very early. it is -- it's simple by the way.

the math is simple you stay one drink behind your senior officer. one drink behind. >> how do you know this? >> well i violated that the first party i ever went to in the corporation. i discovered there was such a thing as free scotch. the idea of free scotch. my goodness! and so i had a lot of it and i went over to the ceo, fortunately was a good person and i embraced him with both arms and said this is a great f'ing party. and he said, go home. and fortunately he didn't hold it against me. >> but he remembered your name gil. >> this is why i began with not appearing stupid. >> how can being a bit crazy or a tad angry work for you? >> well craziness, while it may not work in private life if it acts in business think about the people who are very detail oriented to the point where they don't get along with other people, they make fantastic financial people. >> yes. >> and they're great -- they're
8:38 am
embraced for their details. when it comes to anger, you know, too much of it you have to be a mogul. but some of it if you operate without anger you've lost an edge. you need to have access to your anger, and to manage it properly, if you want to -- if you want to actually function with people. >> can we ask you something with your gil schwartz hat on? >> great. >> hmm. >> presto change-o. >> wow, that really hurt. >> gil schwartz are you here? >> go back a moment to stanley. >> i'm so much less interesting. >> the decision that cbs just made was a huge one, who was going to replace david letterman. and of course it's stephen colbert. a lot of kudos for that. what went into making that call and making it so quickly? and did you make it? >> i had fortunately nothing to do with it. i'm sometimes inept to explain it. it was kind of a natural thing and it happened after dave spoke of what he wanted to do and i believe the thought process had been in progress just in terms of thinking, for awhile. and then i think when both sides
8:39 am
wanted to do something, and dave letterman was also very embracing of the idea. so it was a -- it was just a lovely thing -- >> i got the impression that mattered. chelsea handler posted a picture where she's reading cbs material. should we read anything to that or just stay tuned? >> i'm really going to turn into gil schwartz now and tell you that i can't comment on that. >> suggesting she might be there for the other role? >> i don't know. she's reading the cbs stuff. it's all over the place. >> go back to stanley bing again, i would just say that if you're after a job, doing things like that doesn't necessarily help you. >> okay. >> can i just say -- can i just say this really and we work with you too, but this is really, it was a funny book and i think there's some truth to it. i mean you make light of stuff but there's some truth to how to have sort of emotional intelligence, as opposed to eq the importance of eq. >> thank you. >> we have to go stanley/gil but one reviewer said you could spend $250,000 on business school or get "the curriculum."
